    What can I say about my love for this series? I love the feisty

    What can I say about my love for this series?
    I love the feisty, pigheaded, smart, sassy & extreme hot sauce lovin Jade De Jong.
    This is book 4 in a series that just keeps getting better and better.
    Each book is a wealth of information on something I found that I knew nothing About, South Africa!
    I enjoy the language which trips around your mouth tying your tongue in knots and the names of some
    of the weird and wonderful foods like Boerewors, which is a sausage & Biltong, a type of cured meat.

    My heart broke for Jade in the 3d book “The Fallen” after she had booked a scuba diving Holiday In
    Saint Lucia with her on again, off again married but separated boyfriend Chief Superintendent David Patel,
    hoping to rekindle some of the romance, when he drops the bomb of his "estranged" wife's pregnancy!
    Then along comes smart, cute Environmentalist Craig Niewoudt, who I thought for sure would catch Jade’s
    heart, that is until a brutally murdered dive instructors body is found and then with a cliffhanger ending that
    nearly gave me a heart attack when… oops! You’ll just have to read that book to find out what happened!

    Alrighty then! “Pale Horses” the title of which took until p.212 to finally learn the meaning of. And it most
    definitely does fit the subject matter…
    Jade is nursing her bruised heart when she gets what she thinks is a simple case about base jumper
    Sonet Meintjies, who’s chute didn't open in a jump, leaving her to die and the friend who jumped with
    her hires P.I. Jade to find answers as to exactly what happened.
    What she discovers is a very large, wealthy & nasty company, who under
    the guise of a charity that Sonet worked for is pretending to help a small community farm in Limpopo
    with disease resistant seeds. But when people on this farm start to die horribly and disappear along with
    their livestock, Jade goes after the bad guys with gun in hand.
    What she finds out is that Sonet and her siblings had found damaging information against this company
    and then they too, start to die horribly and disappear...
    Jade soon realizes she has stepped off into a huge and very ugly conspiracy of a potentially global crime.
    This is another chilling, thrilling and all to real page turner that could be ripped straight from the headlines
    of any paper in any country in the world.
    Jassy Mackenzie has done it once again, this book will keep you up into the wee hours turning pages &
    biting your nails!
    I loved the Magdalena Eckhardt “bits” at the beginning and the end, they were wonderful!

    Mackenzie has an amazing ability to lock into topics that may not seem understandable to common people, and making them easier to grasp by laying them out in a murder mystery. In this book, Jade faces politics, finances, and food on a global scale. Because these things have to be explained to her, they are in turn explained to the reader. It helps the reader get in touch with world issues and the culture of Jade’s community. She is a wonderful main character with flaws and hopes and baggage and a lot of love in her heart.

    I was gifted the book by the author for an honest review.
    Jassy is a new author for me, but wow, what a great writer. Jassy will have 3 or 4 plots going on that really keep you wondering how does it all connect. In the end Jassy ties everything up with bright bow and big surprise. I will really have to go back and read her previous books to find out about the romance with Jade and David. Jade is a strong,kick-ass character, which makes for a great detective. David is a police detective, in a loveless marriage. This makes for a very interesting relationship. I definitely recommend a Jassy Mackenzie story for some mysterious, thrilling and little romantic story.

    Jade de Jong reminded me of a dude. Let me just put that out the

    Jade de Jong reminded me of a dude. Let me just put that out there right now, so you're not left wondering later, and just in case you don't like chicks that act like dudes. Me, I have no strong reservations on the matter, and I'm all for equal opportunity. In fact, I'd even go so far as to say that strong women...and men are interesting to me. Because it's not easy to perfect the bad*ss lassiez faire attitude with a devil may care grin plastered on your face.

    But Jade pulls it off. And she does it with a smoking body and smoking attitude. She's not afraid of anyone, and she's certainly not afraid to throw herself in the line of fire. David Patel is the yin to her yang, and it works. It really, really does.

    The South African setting with the swan dive courtesy of Sonet Meintjies off the sixty-five story Sandton skyscraper was a new twist to me in the eventful death arena, and I must say I rather enjoyed the unique approach, not necessarily the demise of said individual.

    I enjoyed the characters, the storyline, and the mystery fulfilled my attention, but I didn't feel like I was a stock car on the last lap of the track executing a mad dash to the checkered flag. Instead, I'd call it heightened curiosity without ever becoming completely immersed in PALE HORSES. But if unique deaths and unique settings are your thing, you'll find plenty of both here.

    I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads.
